In light of this, Tweakers.net's Arnoud Wokke points to a very interesting report about the Dutch telecommunications market.

In Lithuania some carriers expressed their unwillingness to sell subsidized phones in the press and introduced a "monthly phone payment" so you can make monthly interest-free payments instead of paying whole price for your phone straight off. I checked carrier websites and it seems to be the rule with the exception of iPhone.
